*ANNOUNCEMENTS*

 

Anyone living in Riverwest is invited and encouraged to attend the monthly General Meetings. There is no cost for membership.

Usually 10-20 people come to each meeting and we talk about all sorts of stuff related to the neighborhood, such as improving safety, protecting the Milwaukee River, local business openings and closures, upcoming events and opportunities, and more.

Any resident is welcome to take part in the discussions or to just sit back and listen. Either way, it’s a good chance to get to know some of the people who are active in our community, to learn more about the local resources available to you as a resident of Riverwest, and to take part in the decisions we make together about our neighborhood.

Unlike other neighborhood associations, RNA requires no dues for membership. Any resident can make announcements, make motions for the group to discuss and/or vote on, propose items for the next meeting, propose changes to the Bylaws, and take part in any votes that come up during a meeting.

Hope to see you there!

A class for Renters:
Rent Smart provides a practical education to help people looking for rental housing to acquire and keep decent housing.

Rent Smart emphasizes skills that may help tenants avoid legal confrontations. It stresses both tenant and landlord responsibilities and the advantages gained from viewing the landlord-tenant relationship as mutually beneficial rather than confrontational.

Target Audience. The program is specifically designed to help a person who have never rented or are having difficulty obtaining rental housing. This difficulty may arise from lack of experience, poor rental history, poor credit history, or other issues that cause potential landlords to view them as high risk.

The Rent Smart is based on information collected through focus groups held with the types of tenants who could benefit from the program and on discussions with property managers and tenant advocates. The Rent Smart curriculum was developed by staff from the University of Wisconsin-Extension in consultation with the Wisconsin Apartment Association, the Wisconsin Trade and Consumer Protection Division, the Tenant Resource Center, the Apartment Association of Southeastern Wisconsin and other housing and tenant support groups.
